Pregnant Lady OUT


I'm having preterm labor, which is typical for me at this stage of pregnancy. I'm on light bed rest (and hope to keep it that way) for the next few weeks. Because I'M GOING TO LDS STORYMAKERS, I'm disappearing into a Zen-like state of relaxation for the time being.

Please excuse my absence on my blog. I function a million times better AFTER I deliver my babies. Preterm labor is exhausting.

Unless you hear otherwise, I'll see those of you who are attending Storymakers in less than three weeks. Yay!

Oh, and if you haven't signed up yet, check out the Oh, Those High School Dances! Blog Hop. It's going to be a riot!

Thanks, all! I've got my feet up right now...with my laptop propped against my round belly. :)

Ohhhhh.... EM!!!!!

Bleh. I wouldn't wish pregnancy on my worst enemy. It's so stinkin' hard. I can't wait until you can breath, sleep, eat, and function normal again. :)

Lots of love and sympathy your way!

Carrie Butler said...

Rest up, Empress King! Let me know if you need anything, e.g. something to read, gossip, the use of my name for Baby King, etc. ;)

Take super care of yourself. Go for the Celtic music, that's always restful. Deep breaths, visualize the color blue. xo

Aw, rest easy, mama! Thinking non-contracting thoughts for you.

So excited for Storymakers! Yay!

Peaches Ledwidge said...

Get rest and take care of yourself and your baby.

Babies and Mamas, Mamas and Babies. Those are some precious things that must be taken care of.

So beautiful mama, you enjoy your rest and take care of that darling baby.

Hugs!!!

Deana said...

Yes, rest up because you are not allowed to have the little one during the conference and miss it:) I can't wait to meet you meet you Em! Yay, it's soooo close!

Peggy Eddleman said...

Best of luck! I hope everything goes really well, you get to read lots and lots of books, and you still get to come to the conference! I can't wait to see you!

Take care of yourself, Emily. I'll be at the conference on Saturday, so I hope to see you. Good luck with everything.

Exciting! Rest up and come back when you're ready (I assume with a big smile on your face). :)

Sophia Chang said...

oh wow, take care!!! We're all sending our energy your way :)

Melodie Wright said...

Ugh, pregnancy is so awful. Warm thoughts/prayers going out that everything happens at the perfect time. AND you can go to Storymakers w/o worrying about baby interruptions. :)

Stacy Jensen said...

Good luck. Rest. I'll be here when you get back.

Melissa Sugar said...

Stay in bed and enjoy the rest. I don't know about you, but when I was on bed rest I was miserable. I thought I was going to love it-being lazy and lounging around doing nothing, but reading and watching television. Maybe it was because I was on bed rest for my entire pregnancy.

Be careful and don't exert yourself. My triplets were micro preemies, they were so early and the doctor told me that every day that I was able to keep them inside the womb, was equivalent to one week outside.

Best wishes and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Alexis Bass Writes said...

Take care and Congrats!

Medeia Sharif said...

Get plenty of rest, Emily, and we'll see you when you return to your blog. Take care.

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Best of everything to you and your baby, Emily! Rest, take things easy, and enjoy that conference.

Teenage Bride said...

OH NO! I was on bed rest from May to August. I feel the pain

I pray that all goes well.

Thanks for the love over at Unedited!

Oh dear! :( Sorry about the pre-term labor. Hope you get well-rested, and we'll see you at Storymakers, I hope!

Carol Kilgore said...

By all means keep baby happy, healthy, and safe. And mommy, too :)

Nas Dean said...

Please just rest Emily. Put your feet up and just keep resting.

All the best. Have a safe and happy delivery.

Lara Schiffbauer said...

No babies until they are ready, for sure! Take good care of yourself and your wee one, and we'll see you when it's all over and done with! :)

Emily R. King said...

Hi, all!

I'm still hanging in here. Only a couple more weeks to go. Phew! It looks like I'll make it to full term (crossing fingers).

I hope you all are well!

J. A. Bennett said...

Oh man! Wishing you and baby the best!

Susan Kane said...

Those pre-labor women look so well rested. Good luck on the delivery part!

Sangu Mandanna said...

Oh my God, yes, please rest! Hope everything goes well :-)

Romance Reader said...

Have a restful time. Relax with books.

jaybird said...

Aw, best of luck Em. I can relate since I've been in your situation before. (pre-term labor/bed rest with all three of my kids) It's never a fun place to be. As a matter of fact, I can't fall asleep now, unless I'm on my left side, because I had gotten so used to sleeping like that during my pregancies!

Wishing you well and a quick recovery. I always used to say about my high risk pregnancies, my kids were "better off out than in!" LOL

Michelle said...

Thankfully I was never forced into bed rest... Though I did have a couple of babies early... One 5 ewes and one 3 weeks... They came out fine and not looking premmie... So were they really early? None of us really know the answer to that.
Rest well. Hugs
Xx

Michelle said...

Oops weeks... Not ewes

Caryn Caldwell said...

Oh, wow! Good luck! I hope your preterm labor dissipates and you're able to enjoy the Storymakers conferences. I've heard great things about it.

Emily R. King said...

Less than two weeks until I'm full term, peeps. I'm counting down the days!

Thanks again for all your support and understanding. :)
